Some postcards from Kal’…

Have been less than 48 hours in the vibrant gold mining city of Kalgoorlie and already have pictures to post:

No longer quite the rip-roaring town it used to be, a resident takes his dogs for a quiet walk on Hannan Street at sunset. I did note though, that they were a matched pair of Dobermann. © Rob Walls 2011

  1. I really like Kalgoorlie and enjoy going there, even if it’s often only to fly or drive from there to mine site somewhere out in the bush.

    Kal is a truly unique place with unique people and well worth a visit, even more so for those who have never seen or been to a mine site.

    • I agree, Roel. Came in for two days, staying for four (and I’m in a hurry). Off to photograph professional women at Langtrees bordello in about 45 minutes.
